The propagelle was chosen to symbolize the life our family wants to live because we have come to believe that the present order is not sustainable. A new way must spring up that is perhaps tiny at present but powerful in that it contains that information and hopeful spirit that will prove helpful for many. We have the opportunity to create an alternative that will be elegant yet economically and environmentally sane.
"A propagelle is a tiny, mushroom-like spore which can overwinter and endure dessication as more information than mass. With new light and water, wham! the new mushrooms spring up everywhere to transform the landscape. Letting go, eliminating the unnecessary, is the first part of a larger longer cycle of life."
